What outcomes are we trying to achieve with new employee onboarding, and who is ultimately responsible for achieving those outcomes? Effective onboarding has been shown to be a major factor in long-term work satisfaction for employees, and it is strongly correlated with the likelihood of turnover in the first year on the job. Despite its importance, most organizations and managers give little thought to exactly how an employee’s first day, week, and month should proceed.
In this session, speaker Ben Mead-Harvey will discuss his recommendations for the most effective way to onboard new employees, broken into three categories: welcome elements, training with the team, and check-in meetings. He will give a detailed breakdown of each element and spend time explaining the basis for each recommendation.
Ben is an instructor at the University of Illinois, where he teaches courses on Personnel Management and Financial Management of Libraries. He’s also the author of better-boss.com.
